Stoke City vs Blackburn Rovers (2-3) – Match Review – 2018/19

Blackburn Rovers picked up a massive 3 points after scrapping a cheeky away win against Stoke City.

Rovers actually cruised to a three goal lead by the opening minutes of the 2nd half, and looked to have secured the win without breaking too much of sweat.

However Stoke clawed their way back into the match, scoring a quick fire double to leave Rovers scrambling. Rovers nearly threw the points away as an effort by sub Peter Crouch nearly made its way into the net, but Blackburn can thank David Raya for his big body save.

The drama was not over for Rovers as Stoke were awarded a penalty in the dying stages of the match, which Stoke failed to convert. A lucky escape in the end.

As for the goals, one for Bradley Dack (of course), Danny Graham and the third by Harrisom Reed.
